The point about the confederate flag is that even though people say it is
harmless. It was flown during a time when Black people were oppressed
and the South fought to further that oppression. Now, to see that same
flag flying of all places in a football game(I am from MS, speaking on
OLE Miss) is appalling. Considering that at least 80% to 90% of its
football team is Black. If Black people opressed white people in such a
manner and then had the African flag flying high, dont tell me there
would not be any resentment. It's sickening to see that damn flag.
Hell, I might as well start shuffling my feet and say suh! as long as
that damn flag is flying. Were not going to talk about personal
expression using that damn thing. That's another topic.
